Muzzle Brakes

Maximum recoil reduction with reduced muzzle blast.

As the gases exit the muzzle they expand into a spherical pattern. The gases directly in front of the muzzle have an amplitude of approximately double that of the gases flowing 90 degrees to the side. The gases that strike the baffle are directed back to the front portion of the large ports. These gases decrease in amplitude after imparting some of their energy to the baffle. The gases that flow directly from the muzzle to the large ports have approximately the same energy level as the gases that have already struck the baffle. The two gases vector and the result of the combined flow is a direction almost 90 degrees to the axis of the rifle bore. This action eliminates a great deal of sound that would be directed back towards the shooter. The sound directly to the side of the muzzle brake ports is increased. In normal shooting activity an observer would not be in this area, so this increase is of no consequence.

    OPS Inc. muzzle brakes provide maximum recoil reduction with reduced muzzle blast. Originally developed for the military, the OPS Muzzle Brake is the result of extensive research into muzzle gases and the effects of redirecting them for recoil reduction and accuracy enhancement. A large expansion chamber followed by a baffle traps and redirects gases to eliminate dust printing, muzzle rise, and back blast. This results in recoil reduction of up to 70+% with virtually no "puff" back at the shooter… Varmint Hunters, you can watch your shots hit the target with no Dust Blow Ups! They are made of a polished 304 stainless steel for superior resistance to powder corrosion. Total dimensions are 2.6" long and either .866" O.D. or .970" O.D. Also available with .575"- 40tpi for smaller diameter or thin tapered barrels.

  • Threaded Muzzle Brake For Our Suppressors

    Our single chamber muzzle brake is used in conjunction with our suppressors and mounts. It effectively reduces muzzle rise and flash and lessens the felt recoil. The .30 caliber brake is used with our 12th model suppressor and the .22 caliber is used with all but our 3rd model suppressor. Also available as complete kit including barrel fitting, thread protector, and crush washer.
